Dialogue, Character, and Setting (Writer-in-Residence)

18 yrs+

A workshop to hone your dialogue writing skills, we’ll practice writing how we speak, not using dialogue tags, and ways to show emotion through words alone. We’ll also talk about setting and character development. Setting plays such an important role in books, and can sometimes act as a character itself. This is an interactive workshop where we’ll create characters based on provided photos, and then extend that piece by adding another character and different settings to stretch our imagination and see what can be created.
